Tragic and hilarious in equal measure, Tim Lott's story of Charlie and Maureen Buck's ailing marriage and their climb up (and down) the social ladder during the 1980s is a wonderfully honest portrait of ordinary people living through an extraordinary time. Steeped in the decade's cataclysmic events, packed with the crimes and misdemeanours we visit on each another, 'Rumours of a Hurricane' is a powerful tale of change, how we face it - and how we don't.'An outstanding comic novel. Places the 1980s under sceptical and merciless scrutiny' Literary Review.
